Price has started it’s raising with a from the intersection of the bottom line of red and the blue channel and for now I believe the first target would be the top of the blue channel around 3.3$-4$. Although it is possible that price meets the bottom line of the red channel again and start it’s move from there.
In the middle we have a strong resistance on 0.9752$ and also the middle line of the blue channel and if these resistances break out price will meet 3.3-4$.
In a big picture I think if price breaks out of the blue channel from top we can expect to see ripple around 20$ in the early of 2019.
For 20$ I think early of 2019 will not happen anymore but it is still a serious target for me.
Well let's see about that with simple calculations:
There are 39 billion xrp, at $20 each would bring their market cap to 780 billion dollars, which by itself is already more than 3x the market cap of ALL the coins right now (about 223 billion). Likely? Hardly...
On the other hand BTC dominance is about 50% of the market which means even if all other coins disappeared BTC would be minimum 1.5 trillion which would bring them to $88000 . Likely ? Hardly
It's a very simple exercise. What's the probabilities that happens ? Very close to zero maybe?

Many believe with xRapid activation they will slowly transition most of its xCurrent customers to xRapid (which is using XRP) (FYI. 120 banks so far are using Ripple products and that number is cont. growing).
Considering the amount of money that goes through those transaction channels many believe this will drive XRP price up. Actually, I saw some professional banking experts (with decades of experience) calculating triple digit XRP values in next few years (if xRapid is successful). They also introduced Multi-Hop feature recently which will also allow non-xRapid customers to use it indirectly by routing transactions through xRapid gateway banks.
With Ripple team (which is insanely good) you never know :)
